MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A young man is facing multiple charges, accused of kidnapping and severely beating a 17-year-old in Silverbook Township.

Scott Lindgren, 21, is charged with kidnapping, threats of violence, intent to terrorize, false imprisonment and three counts of assault.

According to the Carlton County Sheriff’s Office, the incident started when authorities received a call reporting a young man being held hostage, “in really bad shape, tied to a chair and getting his head stomped on.”

When deputies arrived at the reported address, they found Lindgren and his girlfriend in a car attempting to drive away with the 17-year-old victim in the back seat. Deputies said they could see serious injuries to the teen’s head, face and neck that required medical attention.

Lindgren was arrested at the scene and is being held on $250,000 bail.

Investigators believe others may have witnessed the crime and are asking anyone with information to call the Carlton County Sheriff’s Office.

  1. Shame of cco for closing comments on police involved shooting of black man. The synopsis lines are one sided and loaded with extremely misleading stories. It is sad that people died, but hate will continue and no one learns if these one sided, bias, story lines continues. “Unless society is willing to address the family breakdown that generates violence, it will continue to fall to the police to provide social control where fathers no longer do so.” Hispanic Officer shot in self defense. PERIOD! A drug impaired, armed, robbery matching, motorist, pulled a gun. cco shame on you for your repeated lie. The Oklahoma not guilty will actually keep more black men alive. A department which gives up on proactive policing takes zero guns off the street and will result in more murders. Look at Chicago and Baltimore for two examples.
